There was a strong turn out from Staffordshire Moorlands Labour for the rally against the County Council cuts on Saturday. Lyn Swindlehurst, our candidate for District Council who will be standing in Leek North in May reports back –
“In Stafford Town Centre yesterday for the Labour organised protest rally against the appalling cuts being driven though by the Tory controlled County Council.
These cuts are disguised as ‘austerity’. They are nothing of the sort. They are at the centre of a deliberate Tory policy to privatise the welfare state. Hospitals closed, essential services cut or scrapped, redundancies and zero hour contracts the norm.
